A Message from our Principal

Dear Families,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year at Willcox Elementary School! Our teachers and staff are ready to begin another year of learning and growing together and we hope you are too.

Our elementary school provides a top-notch education to students in PreK – 4th grade. Our focus is on providing a learning experience for our students that includes not only the core academic classes, but also art, music, physical education, computer classes, and many more learning activities. 

I am proud of the staff here at WES, and I am honored to serve as principal. My vision for our school community is one where school and family works together to achieve success for our students. Families can be involved many ways in our school:

  • volunteer in the classroom
  • participate in our Parent Advisory Group 
  • attend parent-teacher conferences 
  • talk regularly with your child’s teacher about how best to help your child at home

All of these are ways that you can support the efforts of our teachers to provide a high quality education for our students. Most importantly, I hope you’ll make it your goal to see that your child reads every day at home and comes to school prepared each day.

Welcome back to school - it’s going to be a great year!
